Welcome back my angels to another blog post. I hope you’re all doing just fine! If not, then take it easy today, everyone can have bad days so eat lots of chocolate, wrap up warm and then later tonight have a bubble bath. Sounds good to me!
I haven’t been what we call ‘out out’ in so long. The term ‘out out’ is so weird hahaha but we all seem to understand each other when we say it. It’s basically going to clubs. But the term “club” is a bit old fashioned (my opinion). It’s a word that makes me cringe a bit too, and I hate the feeling of cringing, ew.
We all have those go-to outfits for nights out. I tend to go for jeans & a nice top..sounds familiar? I’m pretty sure every girls group chat we say “what are you wearing for tonight?” & the response is nearly always “jeans and a nice top”.
But tonight i’m going out out for the first time in absolutely ages with my friend Meg & I want to dress warm, that’s for sure. I’m feeling maybe a dress & some heels with a coat to ‘dress up’ a bit? Or some trousers, boots, jacket & a low cut top? I’ll end up deciding tonight, as i’m at uni all day today, (cry).
Comment down below your go-to night out outfits, i’d love to know. (Plus, I’m nosey).
Throughout this post i’ll show you some outfits that I’ve worn for evenings out this year. I’d match them all with a coat for Winter. (They don’t link to the top tips).
Sophie’s Top Tips:
Top Tip 1) If it’s A/W, you want to dress up warm. I’m not talking about a turtle neck or anything ‘too covered up’ for an evening. But i’d bring a jacket or coat with you. Even though you’d be dancing the night away, you tend to get hot & want to go outside, and it’s 100% always cold outside during A/W.
Top Tip 2) dress appropriately for the event. So tonight i’m going out out but i’m going for a meal with my friend first, so i want to dress appropriately for both. So i’d recommend wearing heels, a pretty dress and a jacket so it’s more toned down. Then it’s still club appropriate at the same time. You also don’t want to look too dressed down to a club. But depending on where you’re going then just dress for the occasion. You don’t want to wear your best heels knowing that loads of people in that place get a bit rowdy & throw their drinks all over you? Not my kinda place.
Top Tip 3) Be yourself & dress for your personality. Some people shy away & just wear something incredibly simple, which can look nice don’t get me wrong! However you wanna be yourselves in these places & dress how you want to dress. You’ll look fabulous in whatever you wear! Never feel judged by those who stare at you & attempt to make comments, they’re only jealous & probably really love the way you look!
Top Tip 4) Heels or no Heels? Well…this is a tough one. Tonight i’ll be wearing heels, purely because we’re going out for a nice meal & I want to look more dressed up than usual. Saying that, in clubs, I always have more fun wearing trainers. Purely because my feet never hurt in trainers & you can run around like a kid & no one will care hahaha. Also if one of your heels breaks then you’re doomed. Either break the other heel so they match or you’ll have to hop around all night hahha! Anyway, make sure your footwear is appropriate. Yes those heels may look fantastic on you, but realistically will they hurt? Yes. Don’t get me wrong, I do wear heels to clubs! But I prefer the comfort of trainers sooo much more.
Top Tip 5) Make sure you bring a bag. The amount of times I haven’t brought a bag & i’ve instantly regretted it. Not a huge one though, just a small clutch or handbag that’ll keep all your belongings in, such as the essentials like lipgloss, concealer, pads & all the girly products we need. But at all times keep it on you!! You don’t wanna lose your purse & end up having a completely rubbish night, if you remember the night that is hahah.
Top Tip 6) If a garment or jewellery piece is really important to you, don’t wear it clubbing. I would rather not lose something I really care about & wear clothes that I don’t absolutely love than to lose an item or get an item ruined that is my favourite piece ever. Even though that Coach bag is the most beautiful bag, save it for a calmer evening out. You don’t want to 1) lose that or 2) get jäger bombs all over it. Trust me.
Top Tip 7) Neon? Well if the event is for everyone to wear neon then sure wear neon! However, if it’s just a normal night out then i’d steer away from those extremely neon colours. 1) they’re not my kinda thing 2) all of the lights will shine off your clothing & you’ll be very noticeable. If you wanna be centre stage then go ahead! But for me i’d steer away from those extremely vibrant colours.
Top Tip 8) HAVE FUN!!! Yes looking the part is all fun and games & getting ready is more fun than actually going out hahah. But having fun is the most important part of the night. Dance the night away, spend time with your best friends & drink ‘til your hearts content. Always stick with your friends though, even to the girls bathroom or to wherever!! But have fun, loosen up & just roll with it. I’ve had people stand & try to judge me so many times in clubs & when I’m out, but they’re not worth it. They’re jealous because you’re having fun & loving life!
Hope these top tips help you at all when deciding any outfits for nights out. I’m out in Northampton tonight with my friend Meg, so I hope to see you all out hahah!
Thanks for reading, my lil party angels.
